Busy Busy Life

I have been wanting to post for a few weeks now but life has just been so busy. Asha started her last session of the year in gymnastics so that keeps our Monday's pretty busy and the rest of the week is just keeping up with spending as much time outside as we can before it gets too cold.

Our weekends have been packed with fun things as well. This weekend we went to the pumpkin patch and picked pumpkins. She loved the wagon ride a lot and we ended up going 2 days in a row because she wanted to do it again. When we went on Friday we went at night and they had a night time ride through the woods and that was fun but she got really spooked because there was someone dressed up like Spider Man and he really was kind of creepy. He even climbed up on the roof of the shop where they sold the pumpkins. It was just really weird the way he moved. The other kids loved it but Asha got spooked so she kept asking the next day all the way back if he was still there or if he went home. I told her he went home and prayed that I was right. Thankfully he was not there.

This past week has been hectic for me because I got a new job. I had my interview on Monday, some Assesment tests right away on Tuesday and found out Wednesday I got the job. I gave my 2 weeks notice and will be starting the day after my divorce is final. As one of my friends said "Out with the old in with the new". My new job is amazing and I really think I will like it. My friend Missy thinks that I will go far in the company and that I will make management. I hope that is the case because managers there make ALOT of money and Asha and I would be set if that happens. I'm sure it will be a few years but it's a nice dream to work towards. It's amazing how far I've come in a year. I look back to where I was last year and I was so depressed and so sad and now I'm happy and have a wonderful job opportunity that could really take me far. For the first time in a very long time I have something to look forward to and work for.

Well here are the pictures which is what I'm sure you've all been waiting for.

Asha decided that her face and body made a good canvas for her chalk. More got on her than on the driveway.
Last Friday she was invited to a birthday part at a place kind of like Chuckee Cheese but it had rides there as well. She loved this duck game but loved getting tickets more. She would hit the button and watch the tickets pop out. She got so excited about the tickets before she even realized that she got prizes for the tickets too.

Here she is trying to play skeet ball. Don't ever let a 3 year old play this. She kept throwing the ball all over the place. I thought she was going to break the machine.

Here is her Halloween costume. She is going to be a little clown. I bought some princess make up with glitter that I will paint her face with. She will be more of a girly pastel clown than a regular clown.

I will have to post pictures of the pumpkin patch later. I thought I had taken them off of the camera but I guess I didn't.
